Cardiff City sign Guido Burgstaller

Cardiff City have competed a deal to bring Austrian midfielder Guido Burgstaller to the City Stadium for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old becomes the second of manager Ole Gunnar Solskajer's summer signings following completion of a deal for Spanish forward Javi Guerra earlier this week.

Austrian international Burgstaller has signed a three-year-deal with Cardiff from Austrian side Rapid Vienna after helping the Austrian Bundesliga side to second place in the table last season scoring 12 goals in 35 appearances.

Commenting on the deal Burgstaller said: “My decision to join Cardiff City was never in question when the club first contacted me, it has always been a dream for me to play in this country.

“I’ve followed Cardiff in the Premier League last season and I’m very proud and honoured to be given the chance to wear the Cardiff City jersey. I’m a big admirer of the passion of the fans here.”
